Trauma experiences leave a wake of conflicting emotions. Overwhelm, grief, shame, sadness, anger are all common experiences that are associated with trauma. It can leave the client stuck in a hopeless and repetitive cycle unable to access the deeper healing emotions of acceptance, contentment, belonging and safety. In this session we will explore three keys aspects of embodied emotions: how the embodied presence of the therapist creates a safe healing container and how to effectively facilitate innate wisdom of somatic-emotional health and the role of self-compassion in trauma therapy. We will explore the notion of “fluid emotions” that reside underneath the trauma narrative and has the power to reconnect the client with their sense self-worth and internalized safety and emotion regulation.



This online program is worth 1.25 hours CPD.
